    Yea just jump on mumble, you can wait in the "waiting around" section of the Dota area, or jump into other's groups and ask them as well.

    And after you play with people, or during, or whatever, try to get them on your friends list so you can contact them that way as well.

    Spam everyone with requests! Also look for lobbies or guild parties

    My emphasis. There is no universe where you need to worry about this; Cold Snap remains one of the best spells in the game, pretty much, and the WEX/quas/exort build stays viable throughout. It doesn't have the raw murder power of the Exort build, but it provides a tonne of disable (and the most spammable Purge in the game) which should be abused whenever possible.

    The gimmick of Wex is he becomes a force multiplier. In a 1v1, you're weaker than the Exort equivalent, but in a 2v2 or onwards, you're much scarier to have around.

    As good as the recent buff to wex may be, it's still pretty situational. EMP isn't reliable enough to really allow spamming of tornado etc.

    So depite Real Lifes best efforts to keep me off Dota we've entered Absolute Bedlam season 3. Should be a fast exit as there's no group stages this time round

    So, if I wanted to add a new team, how do I go about it?

    This is a bit weird... and the first time it's ever happened to me in Dota - we got matched against the same four stack twice in a row.

    I think they learnt something about us - the first game we won in 24 minutes, the second took an hour!

    You know, I never even noticed that... oh dear :S

    The Anon is probably the same person too, its probably a 5 stack. (Same place in the hero list each time). It puts stacks in order of their group in the lobby, so for the #6k guy to be below the Anon he'd have to be in their grp.

    I do remember the kill on that Jugg that Oshid said I "KS'd" though lol, I had like 5 hp and I'd been kiting him around a tree with battery assault on (flared the tree) for a while, 2 other people were battering him at the same time and as he was about's to kill me I hook shot him point blank and got away with about 25 hp I've had that happen to me and its just so infuriating lol.

    Hi guys, I'm up for a couple of games. Pretty inexperienced but could jump in for a few casual games. If you're looking for a much more 'be ready to play at x time and bring your A game' then maybe I can just be a punching bag for some practice games every now and then . Will join Steam group etc. later.
